Some of you may remember that a few months back we got a new sectional which in some ways threw off a couple of things, one of them being our rug made from Flor carpet tiles. It seems like we have always had Flor in some part of our house, as a result we have a stockpile of different styles laying around. In the before picture (first pic) you can see that we used a gray wool mixed with a few smaller accents of yellow. We decided to get rid of the yellow and go with an orange. We had some longer shaggy gray wool tiles that we decided to mix with the shorter. I messed around with a few different designs, Make sure to read the rest to see what we did.
We decided to go with this design. For the orange tiles we decided to go with “House Pet” Flor describes it as “The texture is whiskery, like a wire-haired terrier; or think faux mohair sweater”, we thought it would look good with our other wool tiles. It was pretty straight forward, I just had to cut a few of the tiles in half diagonal.
As you can see we had a little Bob Ross moment with this happy little mistake, I thought I had more gray tiles than I did and the orange stripe came out behind the couch. Obviously that table really doesn’t work there so that will be the next thing I work on.
